Re: [PanoToolsNG] uplading hdview format, zip or rar, or something else?
- First, use tar, not zip. You do not want to compress, but archive the
files into one large file.
Second, if you do this only once - I ave never experiences problems with
ftp, but mounting the target by some networked file system (cifs for
windows, mac or linux, appleshare for mac, or nfs for mac or linux would
be more comfortable. As noone wants to share webspace using such
protocols, the way to go would be tunneling through ssh.
Third - if you are planning not only to upload once, but to maintain
that site, I would rather prefer a synchronization tool. Rsync over ssh
e.g. would be my choice. You'd do the changes locally and sync than,
just transmitting the changes.
All these solutions require you to have shell access to your webspace.
- never mind, I got it now :-)
I'll send the link tomorrow to this huge pano :)

- yes, the last one was 150,000 files. filezilla actually did succeed.
but it took 48 hours, instead of the zipped 1gb which would have taken
about 1 hour. So it's time to stop being so silly :)

Additionally, you can split the output file into manageable smaller chunks with tar in case
your ftp client has problems continuing an upload of a large file where it left off if the
connection is dropped.
